Derek Herman Arrested in Las Vegas Fatal DUI Crash

Las Vegas, NV (September 17, 2021) – On Thursday evening, a 15-year-old boy suffered fatal injuries while officers arrested 52-year-old Derek Herman of Las Vegas in a DUI crash on East Lake Mead Boulevard.

The crash took place at 7:06 a.m at the intersection with North Walnut Road.

Apparently, a  1998 Ford E-350 driven eastbound on Lake Mead Boulevard failed to stop for a red light and crashed with a Toyota Camry the boy was a passenger in, 

At the same time, a  westbound Camry on Lake Mead attempted to turn left onto Walnut Road and also disregarded a red light.

As a result, the front of the E-350 driven by Derek Herman crashed with the right side of the Camry and caused both vehicles to be redirected. 

Rescuers treated the boy at the scene but later died.

Meanwhile, Herman remained at the scene and showed signs of impairment. Derek Herman incurred minor injuries and was arrested for appropriate charges, but police did not say what for.
